Specifications Review

Introduction & Display

Nokia 8.1 sports rear fingerprint sensor and a small top notch which solves the problem of having very thin bezels while keeping the important sensor at the front.  It is a good looking phone constructed from glass and aluminum. The screen on the Nokia 8.1 is a tad larger than the one found in its predecessor and that of the Nokia 8 Sirocco. The 6.18-inch IPS LCD Full HD display boasts of 18.7:9 aspect ratio and 403 pixels per inch density. In addition, the display has a coating of Corning Gorilla Glass for protection.

Camera & Battery

The 8.1 comes with a 20-megapixel front camera loaded with features like HDR, Screen Flash and Face Beauty. At the back, the dual 12+13-megapixels cameras can capture excellent videos and pictures thanks to OIS and EIS.  There is a dual LED flash at the back that aids low light photography.  This phone is a better camera phone than Nokia 8. The Nokia 8.1 is fueled by a non-removable Li-Ion 3500mAh battery that can easily last for a full day even when the phone is on heavy usage.  You can charge it faster thanks to fast-charging (9V 2A) support.

Performance & Platform

This phone is armed with an octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset which is coupled with 4GB of RAM. This set-up promises a smooth and problem experience whenever you are multitasking, playing games that use a lot of resources for an extended period or while doing both.  It runs Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Since this phone is featured on Google’s Android One program, you should expect to receive updates from time to time.

Storage & Connectivity

The 8.1 comes with all the connectivity options found in the Nokia 8. These options include 4G with VoLTE support, GPS, dual SIM slots, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC and a USB 3.0 reversible port.  It is loaded with 64GB of expandable onboard storage space (up to 400GB).
